Spring White Truffle (Tuber Albidium Pico), Fresh
The spring white truffle has a very delicate taste. The aroma varies from very strong to medium and the size is generally smaller than winter truffles. The marbling inside has strong white veins with a brown centre, and the outside colour varies from creamy beige to a russet brown. Flown in from Northern Italy and Eastern Europe, the albidium pico white truffle marks the start of spring. For a decadent breakfast, try shaving this magnificent white truffle generously onto free range scrambled eggs then finish with a drizzle of white truffle oil.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not ship truffles on Mondays as we receive them fresh from Italy on Tuesdays and Thursdays
How to clean and keep fresh truffles
The truffles we deliver are so fresh, they may still have a fine covering of soil or sand from when they were first unearthed. Washing them under a cold tap for a few seconds, then drying them gently, won’t affect the truffle’s flavour.
We advise to consume our fresh truffles within 3 days of receiving.
Once they have been gently cleaned, wrap each truffle individually in a fresh sheet of kitchen paper towel. Place the wrapped truffles in a clean, airtight plastic or glass container, such as a flip-top jar with a tight seal.
Change the paper towel every morning and re-wrap the truffles. Put them back in their container and refrigerate, repeating the process until you are ready to use them.
We suggest keeping fresh truffles in the coolest part of the fridge, ideally at 1 to 2°C, but be careful not to freeze them!
